Ditto on the Atlanta Pops festival release. I play it all the time. I read somewhere that the 7/5 Mountain Jam is edited by like 12 minutes which kinda sucks but I never heard the full version and can't tell. The 12/13/70 American University release is a must have as well(My favorite whipping post). I just picked up the 9/19/71 Stonybrook release while it is a awesome show the sound quality is dismal with a ton of static reminds me of listening a radio station that isn't coming in good. It could use a Charlie Miller upgrade. Still worth the $18 though.
I copied the 2/70 Fillmore from my roomate in college and have it on tape. I just broke it out and will give it a listen. Checked on Ebay and one is going for $127.50 with a few days left on the auction. The law of supply and demand at it's finest.

The second Mountain jam on the Atlanta Pop release is indeed edited down from about 40 minutes to 28 minutes. One of those cases where they did some trimming to get 2 shows down to 2 CDs!

9/19/71 is indeed cool with the enormous Dreams, and Duane playing on Blue Sky. My favorite Allmans show is probably the New Orleans show from a few days before, 9/16/71, one of Duane's last Mountain Jams, plus you get a great You Don't Love Me & Whipping Post & Blue Sky in the same show - though it's just an OK audience tape.

That is a bit disappointing about that mountain jam, i would love to hear it in its entirety , that jam is one of my favorite pieces of music by the Allmans. And I really dig stony took release a lot despite the sound. The blue sky as you mentioned LiA is a killer, and it also has my favorite Liz reed - some serious intensity on that version.

LIA - If you dig that 9/16 show you should give the 3/20 Warehouse show a spin...You get a 40+ min Whippin Post plus a monster You Dont Love Me as well...I still dont think either holds a candle to 8/17/71 Boston Common though..The Elizabeth Reed is outta this world and the funked out Whippin Post is the best Ive heard. Short but sweet official archival release..Love ABB. Ill be at The Beacon on St. Patty's Day checkin them out!

Oh yes, I keep meaning to dig up my Allmans shows again...I'm sure a lot of them need upgrades by now since I got them years ago, when I was just starting to get CDs!
I do have that 8/17/71 release somewhere...

On my list I marked *Excellent on these Allmans shows - 7/5/70 Atlanta, 1/31/71 Fillmore East, 3/20/71 Warehouse, 6/27/71 Fillmore East, and 9/16/71 Warehouse.
